I am the author of the Salsa Beat Machine.

About myself

I am dancing Salsa for about 4 years, and I am also a dance instructor. I love playing the piano and the congas, and have recently started playing a trumpet too. I also dance other styles, such as Cha Cha, Bachata, Merengue, Rumba, Cumbia and everything that has a Latin taste.

In my day life I am a software engineer in a small hi-tech startup company called Confidela. We develop there an online solution for secure document sharing and collaboration, focusing on ease of use, and minimal migration costs.

Apart from dancing, I really love computer programming, and I always try to keep up with the latest technology. When I was flooded with users requests for creating an iPhone version of the Salsa Beat Machine, I have decided to take the challenge and learn apple's Objective-C programming language. The most challenging part was designing the user interface - There's always a trade-off between ease of use and adding many powerful features, but thanks to some community members, such as Alex Schamenek and Tom Tubbs, I have managed to get it done.
